I RACE TRACK. GRAVESKND, L. I.,
I May 28. It was not un eppeelully pleas"-
ant (Jay here this afternoon. The wind
I from the cast was a trifle too cool, and
I when the sun disappeared under a bank
I Of lowering clouds. It been me raw and
K coat collars tvere soon turned up.
B Otherwise It was a perfect day for
I racing. The track wns as flue us silk,
I and In the best possible shape.
I The programme was very good and the
I sport promised to be excellent It) ehur-
I ectcr.
I The opening event was a pretty affair
I t,o the backers of Jullen. To those who
I plnyed the favorite. His "Highness, fit
I odds of l to 3, It was heartslckcnlng,
for the favorite was beaten and easily,
H Jullen kept at Ills Hlghness's head to
H the rtreteh. nnd then lie went to Iho
H front and won handily.
I The favorite's running wns a great dls-
appointment. Chevapenkc, the only
other start, wan close up.
lfelllrur-llnters occupied the attention
of t ho public In th pecond race. Nomad
was a hot fnvotlte, his owner, M. F.
Dwyer, making a heavy plunge. Nomad
ran prominently to the stretch, where he
shotyed the white feather and wns
beaten.. Sykcston, an 8 to 1 chance, He-
cured the purse In a rattling finish, with
Jack Rose, who wns at the same price,
second. Restraint, the outsider, was
third.
llotween M-tuchcn and a small dog,
the ppcotutorR had much to amuse them
In the third race. Mctuchcu wns llrst
chased on the track by half a dozen
stable boys, then n dog not on the truck
anil the assistant starters nnd others
had fun getting him on' the course.
Metuchcn was finally gotten to the post
and the dog sought refuge In n stable.
The race was won by Vestibule In
hollow style. This fellow's Iks nre uii-
der suspicion, but his owner believes he
J Is as fast a sprinter as lives, not except-
ins Kingston. He was an even money
favorite and it wns no trouble for hint
V to beat Teirlller. Metuchen was third.

RACING TO NEW HAVEN.
The Puritan, Pack and Vamoosi
Started All Together.
Shortly after 3 o'clock this afternoon
tho Sound steamer Puritan, of the Fall
! River lino left her dock, rounded the
! Hattery, and proceeded up the East
River at a clipping pace.
Early in the afternoon It began to
be whispered about that the Puritan
and the Richard Peck would engage In
n test for tho supremacy of the Long
I Island waters.
' The two boata raced last year and
the Puritan was beaten. The Fall River
line people contended that their boat
needed nn overhauling, while tho New
Haven line flyer was comparatively
new.
The Puritan waited for tho Peck off
, Fort Schuyir and the race to New
Haven was liti?iin.
Mr. Hearst's vacht, the Vamoose, will
' also. In all probability, take part In the
I raco. She rounded the llattery and
i went tiji the East River shortly be
fore the Puritan.

Hr. Btarln Compares Figure With
the Manhattan Company.
It was learned this afternoon that the
Manhattan Railway Company hnd for
mally withdrawn all th proportions
which It hat submitted to tho Kapld
Transit Commlnslon, nnd that all nego
tiations for the Improvement nnd ex
tension of Its lines nre now at an end.
This action waa taken at a meeting
of the directors of the Company held
last evening, and a letter was then
sent to the Commission announcing the
determination of the Company to have
nothing further to do with the matter.
Commissioner Bushe was seen this
afternoon, but he would neither affirm
nor deny the report which was then
circulating; In Wall street that negotia
tions had been broken off. All he would
say wan:
"I have received a communication
from the Manhattan Railway Company,
which will be sent to Mr. Btelnwny's
house later this afternoon and read.
Until then I have nothing further to
say."
President George J. Gould, of the Man
hattan road, was more frank.
"It Is true," he said, "that the Man
hattan Company has withdrawn Its
offer to build all the extensions and new
routes proposed by the Itnpld Transit
Commission, for reasons that It tins
stated In a letter to the Commissioners.
As we could arrive at no agreement
with the Commission with regard to Im
portant points, It wns decided that It
would be best to withdraw entirely. I
am not at liberty to mnke known the
contents of the communication sent to
tho Commissioners. It Is for them to
do this."
The meetlntf at .Mr. Stelnway's bouse besan
at 4 P. M. All tho commissioners with tbe
exception ot Mr. spencer were present.
Mr. Bushe announced that he had rtcelred
two letters since tbe last meeting of the Com
mission. Tho flrat was the Informal letter
irora Mr. Uoula ot May 19, sayln? that tbe
Manhattan directors oould not consider the,
propositions contained in the resolutions of
the commission at its last meeting. Tbo

lis then read a statement ropresentlntr the
vlcnsotilr. Startn. It lain part as lollows:
It Is proposed to submit harewltu dis
putable eTldence tbat tbe proposition made '
to the Manhattan Company by the commis
sioners regarding compensation to tho ttty
ol Now York, waa reasonable, fair and lust,
and that tbe counfer proposition ot tbo Man
hattan Company ought not to bo entertained.
A comparison of the two propositions fol
lows, based upon tho flfrurei furnished by the
Manhattan company of business for the year
1H02.
The Commissioner' proposition was that
tbe Company should pay the city 5 per cenu
of net earnings. Tbe net earnings were to be
found by deducting from groai earnings all
operating expenses and taxes.
lu this connection it should be notod that
net earnings as ordinarily understood are
found by the deduction ot operating expenses
only from gross earnings, excluding taxes,
aa will be seen by referring to tbe annual re
ports ot the Kallroad commissioners of the
state
Tb Commissioners' proposition Is, there
fore, that tbe company should pay a percent
are upon an amount several Hundreds ot
thousands ot dollars less than tbe actual net
earnings.
Mr. btarln then showed by figures that tbe
net earnings of tho L road lor INtis was
4, 080,705, 6 per cent, ot which would equal
The Manhattan's proposition to pay 3 per
cent., after deducting all expenses, taxes and
Interest on bonds, would bring tbe compen
sation down to ui,85l.
The arerago cost ot operating street sur
face railroads In New York is 7a per cent, ot
gross receipts, such roads are required to
ray tbe city for tbetr franchise anuually 3
per cent, ot their gross receipts tor the first
five years, aad thereafter S per cent, of their
gross receipts.
The operating expenses of the Manhattan
Company are about 60 p-r cent. tf grou re
ceipts. The compensation proposed by the
Commissioners, therefore Is enual to but WW
nor cent., upon tbe gross receipts, or, In fact,
less than one-naif tbe ordinary tax regular.!
paid by street Surface ltallroads.
If the Manhattan Company had been taxed
last year at the same rate 'as street surface
roads, it would hare paid the city (In addl
tlon to regular taxes upon real estate, Ac.),
thesumoft.141,7nB.
Tho CommlsHoncrs propose tbat the Com
pany should pay less than halt this amount,
or eV4U,U38. '
Tbe Manhattan Company, however, offers
to pay but U1.8S1 for the Immensely valu
able privileges proposed, or only about one
sixth the amount tbat surface roads pay for
their franchises.
In proof of the contention that the
(payment of the tax proposed by the
Commissioners would result In no hard
ship to the Manhattan Company It may
be stated that the Company, had tt paid
such tax In 1892. besides every other
expense of every nature whatsoever,
would In addition have earned u clear
profit of more that S2.800,0O0, equul to
37-100 per cent, upon the Company's
capital stock of 130,000,000.
In regard to the cost of making exten
, slons to the roads, Mr. Btarln suys the
figures, 122,634,517 should be IVJOO.Iw, thu
estimated cost of extension to tho von
kera line, as tha building of such line In
not Immediately confronting the Com
pany. The corrected total Is, therefore,
, $18,494,976.
I This amount Is largely In excess of
actual cost. The Company's estimate In
' Ilgured upon lht cost of Iron at four
cents opouiid. There has recently been
let In Cfilcajfo a contract for 30,000 tons
of similar elevated structures at three
cents a pound, fully net up,
It la believed that a contract could at
present be made In New York at the
price of 2.9 cents per pound for Iron
structure, erected and painted.
In addition, the estimate for real es
tate la excessive. It is certain that n
reduction of 5 per cent, from the tig
urea given would quite cover the uctual
cost of the work proposed and leave u
very liberal margin for contingencies.
The cost of the proposed extensions
Is thus, making this reduction, found to
be l.m.m. Instead of 122,604.976, as
estimated by the Manhattan Company,

MR. FOSTER ASSIGNS.
The Ex-Secretary of the Treasury
in Business Trouble.
His Banking House at Fostoria, 0.,
Is Closed.
Much Excitement There liabilities
QlTen Out as 9000,000.
FOSTORIA, O.. Hay IS. Ex -Secretary
of the Treasury Charles Foster startled
the business -world this morning; by mak
ing an assignment of his vast business
Interests for the benefit of his creditors.
Ills assignee Is J. n. Oormlee, a prom
inent banker of nucyrus, and a warm
friend of Mr. Foster. The liabilities nro
given out by Mr. Foster as being tdX),-
000 and the asseta are about the s.tme.
He made the assignment during the
night and the papers were filed at Tif
fin by Mr. Scott, his attorney.
At an early hour this morning the
bank of Foster & Co. was closed on an
attachment for $3,200 In favor of the
Isaac Harter Milling Company, and at
the same time the wholrsnJe grocery
house of Davis A Foster was cloecd by
an attachment for f 1.200 in favor of O.
T. Brown.
The assignment of ex-Secretary Foster
was the signal for the assignment of a
number of concerns In which he wns In
terested. The brass and Iron works was
one of the concerns to nnelgn. Ilestdes
Mr. Foster, Mr. Torts was one of the
owners of this concern. The liabilities
and easels of this company arc Included
with the porsonal statement of tile ex
Becretory. The MambourK. Calcined and Crocker
window-glass companies, three concerns
that have been backed by Mr. Foster,
will nslgn to-day.
Hundreds of persons will be thrown
out of employment.
It Is confidently believed no depositors
In Foster & Co.'s bank will suffer to an
extent that will cause them to assign.
A run was mr.do on the Mechanics'
Savings Hank this mornlni.-, as oon tin
Its doors were opened, but with JSO.0O0 In
currency plied upon the cashier's desk
the demands of all frightened depositors
were promptly met and none turned
it way.
Tho assignment of Davis A Foster,
wholesale grocers, will probably b the
causa of a number of failures. It Is
suld the firm has 1120,000 unpaid accounts ,
nnd notes due it.
The deposits of the Foster Dank, at
the time of Its last statement, were
about 1175,000.
The cashier, Mr. Wilkinson, Is also
treasurer of the Fostoria School District.
' Tho Hoard of Kducatlon h.id 113,000 of
1 cash on hand, and Measure. Davis and
I Foster are the bondsmen.
lu his stutemenl Mr. Foster sas:
"I know that nuw 1 have by my fall
ure Injured many people. Hut 1 hope
none are to be ruined.
"When I returned from Washington
1 knew thut my Indorsements for the
window kIuju companies and tho brans
and Iron works company were very
large o large, In fact, tta to Induce me
to fear that I would have to suxpend at
that time. I, however, prevailed upon a
friend to give me a large amount of
help, and then felt confident that I
could malnta'n myself and flnully come
out all right.
"These concerns owed more than I
then itupposed, and to add to my mis
fortunes the affairs) ot the Fostoria
Light and Power Co.,, of which I am a
lar( stockholder (tod endorser.- proved
to be In bad shnpe financially. Then
mine thu unfortunate financial condi
tion off the country. livery one that
I owed wanted his money, and no one
would lend. Payments for glass in
stead of being In cash were made In
paper. Bales in fact came to a atand
mm. "1 struggled, seeking every possible
means to tide over the situation, until
T am compelled to assign I did not
give up the strugKle till to-day. May
20. It will take the assignee some tlm
to make up thu scluirnie ot my affaire.
In my affairs I Include Foster A Co.,
the Crocker, Mambourge and Calcined
aiass companies, the Ilrass nnd Iron
Works nnd the Fostoria Light nnd
Power Company.
"I can see plainly that In settling my
affairs through the courts, thus com
pelling my assets to be reduced to
cash, larce sucrlllcea will be made.
This helm; so, I cannot give encour
agement that my debts will be paid In
full. The other concerns! with which I
nm connected all are on a sound basis,
except posBlbly Davis A Foster. They
have a surplus of $80,000, and outrht to
uty In full.
"My failure must doubtless cause a
shock to the Interests to the city, from
which I nm sure It will speedily re
cover. I believe our business concerns
arc nil In a sound mid healthy condi
tion, and the two banks ure especially
strong. Depositors with them need not
feel any alarm.
"It Is only Just to myself to say that
two things have caused my downfall,
one was neglect of business occasioned
by my devotion to politics and the
other to an over-zealous desire to build
up Fostoria."
This news concerning tbe private financial
operations of tbe man who was lately posing
as the country's financier at Washington Is
received with great interest In New York.
More especially as it is held tbat the pres
ent gold dinicultles of tbo Government were
augumented through Mr. Poster's un.
fortunate policy In the Treasury Department,
Charles Poster was appointed Secretary ot I
tl,o Treasury by President Uarrlson In Feb
ruary, 1SU1, to succeed tho late Secretary
Wlndotn. He nad been a figure In National
politics for twenty-one years, but had done
nothing In particular to recommend him for
tho place to wiilch Mr. Harrison called blm.
He served to tho end ot tbe late Admlnl-,
tratlon, and Introduced some new methods of
bookkeeping and ot making out reports
which subjected blm to severe criticism.
Tbe banking house of Foster & Co., at
Fostoria, was not a large concern. Tho lasest
Bankers' Almanac gives lu.pald-up capital as
fHO.ooo; surplus, $3,000; undivided profits,
tii.ooo. Mr. Foster is President and J. K.
Wilkinson, Cashier.
The New York correspondent Is the Shoe
and Leather tfank, at 271 Broadway,
tirsldes his banking house, .Mr- Foster was
Interested lu glass maautacturlng,
gas companies, real estate and farming
properties. Ho was connected with
tbo " Nickel-Plate " deal wben tbat road
pasted to tho Vauderbllts, and was said at
the time ot his appointment as Secretary to
have connection ntth sovrral Standard oil
oncems. He went Into tbo Window Ulms
Trust wben It was first forming.
Mr. Poster Is an ex-Governor of Ohio and
tin ex-Cougresman, and has aspired to a seat
In the l ulled btates Senate. Fostoria was
named after bis father, Charles W. Foster,
wbuti It was organized In 18A2 by the uulon
ot two other towns, Homo and ltltdon. U
has a population of 3,000 to 4,000, among
whom the ox-Secretary was very popular
and for whom be endowed an Academy.
At tbo bboo and Leather Bank, 871 Broad
way, the President's representative said;
We bare heard only rumors ot Foster
oa's failure, and have nothing direct to
confirm tbe report. However, Foster 4 Co.
carry a balanoa wltb us, and In any event we
are properly protected."

It Is reported that there Is a con- kil
eplracy on foot among the jockeys to laLM
force Starter Rowe to resign his posl- .fM
tlon. This story Is about as ridiculous A'aH
as the ono which alleged that there iffll
was a deal made to beat Lamplighter. V'siH
The boys. It Is said, claim that the Ones 'iH
Imposed by Mr. Rowe are excessive. vjeeH
The trouble Is, however, that the starter yilaaH
does not punish the boys severely v'tViH
enough. Some of the jockeys act badly TjfH
enough to warrant their being conslcned KiafsH
to a dark cell for the remainder of the -l
year. VflsH
